A perfect buck knife

Updated on March 11, 2011

The Buck 110 folding knife

Looking for a good knife? look no further

If you like pocket knives and are looking for a very versatile yet durable knife then I have the perfect knife that won't make you broke. It is a buck knife with about a 3-4 inch blade and fully extended its a little less than a foot long. This knife is really nice beause it has a very sturdy wooden handle and a very sharp stainless steel blade. I took my buck knife camping and was able to use it for widdling wood, cutting food, starting a fire and doing just about anything else you can think of. After my 4 day camping trip I expected my knife to have a lot of scratches in it and the edge to be dull and damaged but as i look at it the blade still looks new and I put it through hell. I like buck knives because they have that classic look with the wood and always feel very sturdy. I highly recommend this knife to anyone who is looking for a good versatile knife. I found it at Big 5 for about 35 bucks and there is one at wal-mart that may be the same for 30 bucks. When buying it be sure that you hold it first and take a look at it so that you know it's not cheap or weak. Also look for it to say Buck 110 U.S.A. at the base of the blade, cheap knives usually don't have this stamp. Unless I snap the blade off doing something stupid or lose it, I really don't see myself needing a new knife anytime soon. So check it out and buy it.

      The 110 is a great knife. I carry mine in a sheath cause it is a little large. But I love it. Nice Hub!

      Buck makes a nice knife. That is a big folder you have there. For camping I might prefer a fixed blade variant although a folder is easier to carry. The Schrade knives made in America are very nice along with Benchmade knives (also made in America).

      This knife is certainly one of the classics. I had one back when I was a teenager. Lost it of course. If not i would probably still be using it today.

      I used to have a buck knife years ago, an American made knife until I lost it. I went to buy another, and when I got it home I was shocked to see "CHINA" stamped on the blade. The knife went right back in the wrapper and back to walmart and I said I want my money back for this chinese crap! The lady told me that what had happened is when schrade went under, buck bought what was left of their stocks, and cashed in on them and took that money and built the plant in china. I always said if I ever buy another buck, I will pay the extra money for an American made knife. I own alot of leatherman tools, which I know some of the components are not American made, but I do know none of the parts are made in china! When they are built, they are built in Oregon, buy Americans for Americans!

      I have several schrades, cases, and leathermans...not a one says CHINA anywhere on them.

      Buck knives are great. I own a couple of 525s, a 110, a 119 and a 120. Very durable. One major drawback however is that Bucks are very difficult to sharpen. It is best to take them to a professinal sharpener the first time and then keep an edge on yourself after that.

      How do you guys feel about Gerber? They make a pretty quality knife for the money...IMO. I do like a good Buck knife, and the 110 is good for the money too...

      The blade on a 110 is not anywhere near 5-6 inches long, it is actually less than 4...

      I own a 110, as well as a 055, 119, 373 and 102 Cocobola. All are great, even the import 373.

      At WalMart watch out for crappy "Winchester" knives made in China. WalMart used to sell Schrade knives made in upstate New York. But they switched to a very poor suppler of Schrade knockoffs in China. Shrade went bankrupt shortly thereafter, putting 100 craftsmen out of work.
